On Wednesday, the level of air pollution in Delhi was marked “very poor” instead of “severe” where it has been hovering for 10 days. Around 6 pm on Tuesday, the average level of PM 2.5 was 351 units, down from over the 450-490 range but still 14 times the safe limit. The measures, part of the Graded Response Action Plan, were enforced on November 8 after pollution levels had spiked, hitting the emergency category, accompanied by thick smog.
